American Bondage entering KU

I originally released American Bondage under the pen name, Sallie Holt. Sallie Holt was the name of my paternal grandfather’s mother. After several miscarriages and four live births, Great-Grandma Sallie died in 1912. She was just 25 years old.

I later added my pen name Anna J. McIntyre as a co-author to American Bondage.  With the current political climate of our country and recent talks of a new Supreme Court reversing Roe VS Wade I decided to release the short story under my own name.

American Bondage is under 6,000 words long. And while I’ve priced it at 99 cents (the lowest I can price an ebook) I have just added it to Kindle Unlimited, which means if you belong to the program you can read it for free. It also means you can only find it at Amazon.

While I’ll probably make just a couple pennies if you read it in Kindle Unlimited (KU), that’s okay with me, because this is a story I would just like read. It will probably take a few hours or maybe a day for it to show up in KU.

Reader Beware!

As many of my readers know, Bobbi Holmes is my real name—and Anna J. McIntyre is a pseudonym I have written under.

My Haunting Danielle books—written under Bobbi Holmes—are G-Rated, with minimal cursing, and you won’t find any graphic sex. Actually, you won’t find much more than light kissing, and that is rare. I often say a book from the Haunting Danielle series is one you can comfortably loan to your teenager or elderly grandparent without blushing.

The books written under Anna J. McIntyre are more adult themed—R-rated. Anna J. McIntyre’s Coulson Family Saga, which includes five books, spans a century. It tells the story of one American family. Topics dealt within the series include homosexually, adultery, teenage pregnancy, rape, murder, lies, deception, political corruption, feminism, and true love. When looking back on the series, I often say it is really about the women—the women in that family and the challenges dealt them in each generation—and how they ultimately persevered.

I’ve had some of my Haunting Danielle readers find the Coulson Family Saga, read it, and love it. However—I’ve had others who found the books—well, too explicit. It’s a completely different genre from Haunting Danielle, which is the reason for the change of author name.

So for my Haunting Danielle readers who would rather stay away from explicit sex scenes, an occasional F-Bomb, and darker subjects—I don’t believe it’s a series you would enjoy.

Another series under Anna J. McIntyre is my Unlocked Hearts series. They are happily ever romances, with light sex scenes, and some foul language. When writing under Anna J. McIntyre, I try to be realistic with my characters, in their language and actions. Readers of spicier romance tend to call the Unlocked Heart series “Sweet Romances,” while readers of sweet romances find the books too explicit. I suppose they fall somewhere between sweet and spicy.

Of course, you can might want to skip my Anna J. McIntyre books all together, since the next Haunting Danielle book—The Ghost of Second Chances—will be out in June!

Just one more day…

If you’ve preordered The Ghost and the Bride, it will be showing up on your device tomorrow morning. This is the 14th book in the Haunting Danielle series. Whenever I release a new book, readers typically ask, “Is this the last one?”

My answer: No.

I’ve five more Haunting Danielle books rattling around in my head that must be written to take the series where I want it to go. I normally release about four books a year, so unless something unforeseen happens, this series will still be bringing new releases through 2018.

What about the following year? I’ve more story ideas for the series, but if I write them will depend on the fans. If my readers still want more of Walt, Danielle, and the rest of our friends in Frederickport, I will happily deliver.

By the way, while you are waiting for The Ghost and the Bride to go live, I am already working on the next one, which is available for preorder at Amazon.
